Message to clients

I strive to create a trusting, warm and supportive environment, which I believe is essential to the healing process. I work collaboratively with clients to address their emotional distress and help them achieve self-growth. My services are aimed to support adults of various cultural backgrounds who are seeking to make meaningful changes, improve their mood and their overall sense of well-being.

Through my professional training and practice, I have gained a better understanding on how everyone is unique and relates to their emotions differently; therefore I believe cultural sensitivity is key to develop an effective treatment approach. Working with diverse populations on a wide range of issues and different modalities has been an invaluable clinical and personal experience.
